A huge number of people that I know got engaged this year. Many of them never could have guessed a year ago that this would have happened and it has completely transformed their lives. One of them is even off on her wedding/honeymoon combined trip even as I write this, and expecting a child that she never thought she would have. It's amazing the surprises that life holds for us all. It just goes to prove that we never really know what's waiting for us around the corner.
